8 September 1995 Application of diffractive optics to infrared imagers
Author Affiliations +
An overview is presented of diffractive optics and micro-optics technologies and their application to infrared imaging systems. The technology overview describes several fabrication methods, emphasizing the importance of diamond machining for infrared systems and materials, and discusses various optical functions commonly implemented with diffractive elements. Applications are discussed both as a general survey by citing an extensive list of references and as a more detailed presentation of three examples.
